Summer programs allow for structure in what can be a seemingly timeless break. Countless opportunities in various areas and topics promote productivity, introduce new ideas and perspectives, and create memories that will remain after summer ends. Students with a certain interest can find programs centering on it to gain deeper knowledge, to acquire hands-on experience, to work with individuals with similar passions.
